I am not a great lover of Bananas or Apples for that matter. But I hate wasting food more than the un-love of bananas. I had half a dozen bananas just going to the stage of over-ripening.
I had seen banana breads doing the round in blogosphere but had never made one. V had always balked at the suggestion. So this time around, I didn’t suggest, I simply made it while he was at work. And I knew he would have no reason to crib as this quickbread uses 100% whole wheat, bananas, chocolate and brown sugar.
I had him this time! Yipee!!! No better achievement than one-up your spouse!
I adapted the bread to suit my taste – added a hint of cinnamon, replaced all-purpose flour with whole wheat, reduced the sugar and replaced with brown sugar.
This quickbread doesn’t require fancy words as it was truly perfect in every sense. It tempts one and all – kids and finicky adults (read: hubby), healthy, beautiful to look at, low sugar. Great snack for kids in tiffin or after-school or with a glass of cold milk.
The bread is moist, tender and sweetness just about right. It was gone in minutes at my place.
I even got my first commercial order when my neighbour tasted this bread. She ordered 3 kgs marble cake for her office on the occasion of her birthday.
Try it and you will love it.
Sending this healthy quickbread to:
